Within the last few days, I really have begun to "feel" pregnant with twins. I know that's a funny way of saying it. But certain things are becoming harder to do, and you don't really notice it right away. For instance, it is already super hard to paint my toes. While ironing a project this morning, the steam kept burning my belly. Its getting harder to carry the laundry baskets because my belly is "in the way." I am quickly running out of lap room for my other three kiddo to sit on. And that's just to name a few things. I know they are little things, but its kinda scary that this is happening so quickly. In my other pregnancies, I wasn't feeling this way until right before we had the baby. I guess I had better get used to asking for help. I think I am really going to be needing it sooner than I thought. I am still really excited about the babies, so don't get me wrong. It's just hard accepting that I can't accomplish the things that I want to do easily.
How far along: 18 weeks 5 days, today. 149 Days to go!!!! :)
Maternity Clothes: Jeans, Shirt from Old Navy, Necklace from my hubby on our first Christmas together while dating (boy that was a while ago....hahaha).
Size of Babies: About 5.5 inches. The size of a pear - So two, dancing, sweet little pears!
Weird Changes: Apparently this pregnancy is making my skin more prone to sunburn. Yes, I do have fair skin to begin with, but never have I been the only one looking like a lobster after a few hours outside!!
Best moment this week: Being told that you look pretty. It's hard sometimes to feel pretty when you don't feel well, are tired and uncomfortable, and when you feel you look like a whale.
Still taking guesses. Thoughts on names anyone??
What I am looking forward to: Letting the kids feel the babies kick. The kicks are stronger but still not enough to feel them really well on the outside.
Weekly Wisdom: Watch out for the sun!!!! & Wear sunscreen! Guess I am going to need to invest in a floppy hat.
Milestones: Getting closer to the half way mark. (We are actually already there by, my personal delivery standards...but who counting? )
